HOW DID THE PROGRAM BEGIN?
The Window Walk was a new addition to the Craft Cubed Festival, 2015 and extension of Craft’s Window Space 24/7 program. The Walk was a collaboration between venues and makers to present window displays from mini tableaux to grand experimental installations. Centred around Flinders Lane and surrounds, it was promoted as a self-guided tour of the city that took craft aficionados down laneways, subways, to prominent locations, artist studios and creative hubs. Seventeen venues and twenty two artists were involved in the final curated walk - an opportunity for makers to activate spaces and to push the boundaries in their practice in an exhibition context.
